Indian-American food delivery man stabbed in New York: report | world news

An Indian-American Uber Eats delivery driver has been stabbed multiple times in an attack in the United States by a career criminal with more than 100 arrests on his criminal record, according to a media report.

Bharatbhai Patel was stabbed to death on New York’s Lower East Side on Tuesday by the ex-con described by police as a “super perp”, the New York Post reported.

The Uber Eats delivery driver told The Post on Tuesday that the man stabbed him on the Lower East Side without saying a word — and passers-by did nothing.

“Nobody helped,” Patel told the Post.

“He killed me here, here, here and here,” Patel said, referring to the career criminal suspect and pointing to his injuries.

“He didn’t ask for anything. No, ‘I need the money.’ Nothing, the report adds.

“Maybe they need money or something for my bike,” he said. “But the guy didn’t ask me anything.”

Patel said he saw about three people near him during the 3 a.m. attack who did nothing to help him – leaving him to call 911 himself, the report added.

He speculated that people may have been drunk.

“Maybe three people near me?” They drink for alcohol. And the one lady, the bus, they were right there… (I) see people, but no one helped.

“All the time the police are there,” he added. “But this time, no police.”

Patel, 36, the married father of a 6-year-old son who lives in Queens, was on Allen Street near Rivington Street when deranged suspect Sean Cooper – who has 103 previous busts to his name – grabbed his e-bike , the man and cops were quoted as saying by the report.

Patel clung to the bike and was stabbed repeatedly, with the assailant then fleeing.

The delivery man was treated at Bellevue Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Cops then arrested Cooper, a 47-year-old career criminal with more than 100 arrests on his rap sheet, and charged him with assault in the brutal attack.

Patel said he was “surprised” by the attack and recalled feeling pain.

Law enforcement sources said Cooper, whose nickname is “Big Coop,” is so well known to police that he has earned the nickname “super perp,” according to the report.

Copper was last arrested Sept. 18 for grand larceny and five petty thefts, police said.

He was posted $10,000 bond at his arraignment Tuesday night, with the judge citing, in part, his open warrants and previous felony convictions.
